I recently went down south to visit some family and every time I go I have the best time, which made me wonder why? I only ask myself this because I was born and raised in a city/Urban environment in DC. So why some people find it boring going to a small town, it has the opposite affect on me.
When I went on my vacation I didn't have a care in the world. I didn't think about school, blogging, or anything. Most of the time when I go to the South I'm able to relax in a way I can't in the city. I swear I have never slept so much in my life. I was kind of scaring myself by how much I was sleeping. I don't know maybe it's the Clean Air, or the quietness but it's so damn peaceful there.
Every time I go to the South or a small-town the hospitality is unmatched. Everyone says hello and has a smile on their face as they greet you, it's amazing and such a warm feeling. In the city you don't get that. Everyone is very cold and to themselves. So when you see someone waved at you for no reason but to just say hello or hold the door for you it's like the best thing ever. Southern Hospitality is real and I loved every minute of it.
Don't get me wrong there are a million amazing eating spots in the city but it's something about southern comfort food that is just irresistible. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. In small towns they don't cut corners on ingredients and everything is so fresh because everything is locally grown. Also they are not stingy with their food they will actually overfeed you and tell you to take some home. Hey, but I'm not complaining.
